You can use a wedding as an analogy for starting a business.

At some point, (and it's probably the case for most people in my opinion), you have to appreciate the mundane and tedious details of a relationship in order to sustain it. You can't build a solid foundation if you keep wanting the wedding cake and reception day after day.

Unfortunately, social media's merge with business and marketing has placed more of an emphasis on the wedding photos rather than the dirty diapers. Because at the end of the day and in this self promotional age, winning is about eating cake, not smelling poop.

To take your wedding analogy a step further; if you end up doing business with a company that only goes for the hype instead of the substance, you are likely to get screwed - but not in a good way.

There's a recognizable collective intelligence in a relationship, or in any organization big and small. For example, you can almost immediately tell when there's a problem with a couple no matter how beautiful and successful they appear to be on the outside. Their commitment to each other seems suspect and your trust and confidence in them diminishes. In other words you recognize them as a liability rather than an ally.
